Forum: GratefulDead Subject: January 1968 set list questions

This has been discussed before, but I know some of us love to toss this stuff around and I don’t find the answers I’m looking for – although I am prepared to accept that there are none! After spending a long time with these dates, I am ready to move on. I need help attempting to place the songs in the order they were played, if indeed it is possible to know. I speculate about first and second sets, and I am not certain that I have exhausted all available resources, but I am getting exhausted trying to figure it out. Hopefully there will be more 1968 releases from the vault in the future. So...

1/20/68
/Clementine ->
New Potato Caboose ->
Born Cross-Eyed ->
Space ->
Spanish Jam ->
Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) Jam ->
Dark Star/

With the 2/14/68 road trips extras we get Schoolgirl and Viola Lee from this date.


1/23/68 (There are still questions about this date/venue, and 1/22 also, as actually being 1/26 and 1/27 which makes sense - why does the road trips release say 1/23?!)

Cryptical Envelopment ->
The Other One ->
Cryptical Envelopment ->
Clementine ->
New Potato Caboose ->
Born Cross-Eyed ->
Spanish Jam/
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1968-01-23.sbd.miller.97343.sbeok.flac16

With the RT extras we get Viola Lee, BIODTL, Hurts Me Too, and then the Dark Star>China Cat>Eleven>Lovelight.

And LiA has suggested that the Spanish fragment we have from 1/27 is actually a continuance of the cut Spanish and ends the show. http://www.archive.org/details/gd1968-01-27.sbd.miller.97344.sbeok.flac16

Well, any new ideas, or old ones I have missed? I wish to put the bonus songs on disc with what I have from their respective shows, and thought it wouldn’t hurt to ask for thoughts on song order.

This is the most exhaustive discussion of these early '68 setlist questions -

(Arck has been a tireless investigator of that tour, and he's posted more speculations about it in the past.)

I don't have any more to add, really. (Except that my notion that "3/31/68" was recorded on 1/22 was wrong.)
